Comparison of 4 Weeks of Circuit Training Versus Resistance Training in Middle-Aged Adults
Despite significant progress, cardiovascular (CV) disease remains the leading killer in the US, with lack of physical activity being a primary risk factor. Research suggests that 4 weeks of exercise training reduces blood pressure (BP) and fat mass, as well as improves fitness; yet it is unclear whether circuit training (CT) or resistance training (RT) yields better short-term improvements.
